The Beast Foundation

Where It All Began

The Beast Foundation is the brain-child and heart of Tendai Mtawarira (The Beast) a Zimbabwean-born South African professional rugby union player who played for the South African national team and the Sharks in Super Rugby. With 117 caps, he is the most capped prop in South African history and the third most capped Springbok of all time. He is also a 2019 Rugby World Cup Winner.

Beast wants to continue his legacy and make an impact in Africa through sport, education and life skills development. The Beast Foundation promotes the social, psychological and physical development of children and teaches them important life skills through sports. The aim is to give hundreds of children from underprivileged areas the opportunity to play sports and develop their full potential to become world-class champions. The Beast Foundation uses the power of sports to educate, inspire and mobilize young people – giving them opportunities to thrive on the field and beyond.



To transform communities through sport, education and delivering effective mentorship to young people from underprivileged backgrounds.


The Beast Foundation assists young people in forging their future by helping them access sports training, skills development and education opportunities. 

Our Team

We believe that one hand can’t clap and as a collective we can do more. We need other people and organisations to help us on this journey of developing young people. We are connected with our partners, with each other and the community.
